Honey Cocktails – The Ned hotel shakes up a honey cocktail storm!

- Honey - by Bees for Business

We’ve teamed up with the award-winning Head of Bars at The Ned hotel in London, Dan Berger who took our British, raw, artisan honey and has shaken up a storm to create these remarkable cocktails with honey at their heart, using the honey from The Ned’s beehive, which we look after here on our farm…

Dan won the illustrious title of “Bombay Sapphire World’s Most Imaginative Bartender” in 2015 and we couldn’t think of anyone better to handle our honey. Let us know which is your favourite!
